A now business here, a new friendship there; here a l.:^lucky aecident, there a disastrous failure; here a birth and rejoicing, there a death and mourning; and, as the mind recalls them and no connection between them, except that of time or place. Another person comes out of'each one fuller, stronger, wiser than before. i .' serious illness has led him to study the : laws of his physical nature, and taught him holibw to secure health for himself, his family, a?nd those whom he may influence. A dis' nster in business is sifted to the bottom. and new light is thrown on future plans. Or a great happiness comes to him, and lie hastens. to share it with others, or learns through it how he may bless others.

Accordingly he not only kept a sharp and constant watch uponthe candidates, but peered at themnfrom time to time between the lingers of ;his hands - spread before his face. At last he thought he detected a man in sdmething which looked very sauspici m'us. Looking fiom side to side to satisfy himself that no one observed him, the man-plunged his hand in his breast poc ket and drawing tomething out, re garded it long and steadfastly, and then, hastily replacing it, resumed his pen and wrote with obviously increased energy. The examiner pretended not to notice this, but after a time he rose from his eeat, and with his hands in bis poclets strolled round the rooni with an appear ance of negligence and indifference to w?hast was going on By these means he succeeded i...

The deputa tion pointed out that the carryings-oi at' these sb-called rasces, and' the language used were disgraceful in th; extreme and so unbearable, that ten ants were compelled to leave their domiciles and seek other localities with a purer air; while property was so far depreciated as to be almost un saleable. Mr. Bent expressed his surprise that such a state of things existed, and cordially sympathised with the object of the deputation. He moreover promised that the "lease," which expires in April next, would not be renewed. The respect able residents of Brighton will hail this discussion with extreme satisfac tion.
